joe" economic analyst, steve ratner. in washington, chief foreign affairs correspondent and host "andrea mitchell reports," andrea mitchell. >> happy monday. go redskins. >> go redskins, man. >> impressive. >> thank god i'm not an eagles fan. it couldn't get much worse than philadelphia eagles. what about the jets? they won big. they're like 2-18 now. >> on a roll. >> you're a jets fan, right? >> yes. >> jets and mets. >> jets and mets, they rhyme. >> they do rhyme. and they're both bad. >> all right. >> okay. there you go. great. we have a lot to talk about. >> a little counter fan agenda in new york. >> boy, i tell you what, you're thinking after the election nothing is going to happen? then you see those sunday shows yesterday? kaboom. >> too much to cover. >> kaboom. there's too much to cover. it's like ten pounds of sugar in a five-pound bag. >> oh, lord, i know. you use that term. >> it's not sugar. a lot of stuff going on, though. and yesterday, boy, there were some explosive back and forths. >> on some of the talk shows. let's start though with the budget negotiations on

to seek some sort of compromise. >> it sounds so reasonable. let's bring in steve warren. he's an editor at the wall street journal, a conservative. steven, do you agree, are the republicans ready to strike a deal with the president if it means giving up the bush tax cuts for the wealthy? they have dug in on this. >> i don't know, ali. i listen to this conversation and i feel like i'm living in france. i see no economic wisdom in raising tax rates in an economy that is so fragile right now and a recovery that looks like it's losing steam. you saw what happened with the unemployment numbers this week. now, some of that was due to the storm, but this is not an economy that's kicking on all cylinders. it's barely kicking on one cylinder. what i don't understand about what you and mohammad are saying is how in the world do you get the economy to grow faster if you're going to raise tax on businesses f you're going to raise tax on investments -- >> the issue is compared to what. >> exactly. >> you don't want taxes on the rich to go up. compared to the risk of a fiscal cliff, do you think repu
andrew ross sorkin and steve liesman. joe is out sick. we hope he's feeling better. futures are rebounding a bit. stocks finished near session lows yesterday, down 185 points at the end of the day. all the major s&p sectors closed in negative territory. nasdaq and russell 2,000 are now down more than 10% since the highs they reached back this mid september. the green arrows will be welcome to the bulls today. also, the ceo of mellon will be joining us to talk about the markets. as we've been talking about, the biggest issue for the markets right now seems to be the uncertainty surrounding the fiscal cliff. yesterday business leaders urged president obama and lawmakers to prevent a year end across board tax rise that will go into act unless congress acts. >> he understands it requires a combination of tax increases and title refor and discretionary spending cuts that dnl democrats and republicans have to work together. i'm is sure there will be a lot of forth and back between republicans and democrats, the congress and the president as they start to work their way to a deal.
strategist steve schmidt, presidential historian doris kearns goodwin, nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd, and the "washington post's" bob woodward. >> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press." with david gregory. >> and good sunday morning. the newly re-elected president's message on friday, get back to work. but the focus of that work and on that work is now overshadowed by friday afternoon's resignation of cia director david petraeus, which sent as you know shock waves through washington. new details emerging now this weekend about the fbi investigation that led to the discovery of what officials believe was an extramarital affair between petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. and of course so many questions about where this goes from here. joining me now for the latest on this developing story, the "washington post's" bob woodward and our own chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell who broke the story as i mentioned on friday. so andrea, here we are on sunday
conflicts, the vietnam war. national correspondent steve centanni is live for us in washington. steve? >> hi, harris, at the vietnam memorial today, he said each soldier who served in vietnam includes himself, came home a changed person n a lesser ways, a visit to the vietnam memorial can also change a person, i was there today. everybody has a vietnam memorial on the list of places to visit when they come to washington and very few realize the emotional impact once they get here. the somber lines of people filing past the black granite walls, the names, 58,000 names carved in the wall, you can reach out and touch it and feel it and see your reflection in the shine i black surface, as if to reflect on the war and its impact on american history. a lot of raw emotion here as people remember their loved ones and they leave lists of people they leave little letters, in one case, a 12-pack of beer must have been the favorite of this particular serviceman, leave american flags and notices and letters, a personal connection people have to the names carved in this wall it's not just a monument, it's
with us, republican strategist steve schmidt and newly elected democratic congressman from texas, joaquin castro who just happens to have a twin brother who is the mayor of san antonio. oh, my god. >> call him later today. >> not call the mayor, the joke and whole fun with the split screen that will be done never that will get old never. no just fascinating. great to have you here. congratulations on your election. a lot to get to. chuck todd, let's start with this scandal about general petraeus. within this white house this had to be something that really took them by surprise but then there was a big question does he need to resign? >> it really did. the president did take -- they didn't want to fill this step. it was funny to watch so many fairly high-level white housers on friday didn't know why what was going on. didn't know this whole -- i mean, the president it was a tight circle of people that knew specific reasons and going down that road. this suspect an opening they wanted to fill. they have plenty of openings they wanted to fill, particularly on the national security team. >>
? >> i think if the republican party would have listened to what steve said in his opening comments they would begin to rehabilitate themselves quickly. i think there is going to be a civil war between, you know, the view of people like steve and the view of some in the entertainment complex and the hard right. i really thought up here, i'm not going to say a single challenging thing about governor romney. but it was reported that he thanked some of his donors, the nice thing to do. he said ha the reason he lost was that the president had given gifts, his word "gifts" to young people in the form of student lones and student lone repayment policy. gifts to the latino community by saying if dream act kids would not be deported over the next couple of years. so that sends a fundamental misreading about what happened. paul ryan said yesterday, the reason we won is we did well in urban areas. ok. we won wisconsin. we won jamesville his hometown by 4 points and he lost it by 10. it's not an urban area. so it's disturbing within eight days that there's still this thing about that gift, gif
is speaking. the embargo's lifted. steve leisman, what's he saying? >> fed chairman ben bernanke saying the federal reserve will continue to use policy tools to support the economic recovery and making some positive comments about the housing markets saying for the first time in a number of years the housing sector is improving and adding to jobs and growth in the economy but saying housing is not out of the woods. it still faces significant obstacles. pointing out though the benefits of the housing revival remain quite uneven. saying that strengthening the housing recovery is still a critical challenge for all policymakers. makes a special point here that i haven't seen in at least a while, if ever, talking about the impact of the housing crisis on lower income and minority communities, saying they have been disproportionately affected by the housing bust. i want to spend a little time talking about this because there is a message to bankers in this. he's pointing out, since 2006 when you look at purchase mortgages to african-americans and hispanics, it is down 65%. down 50% to non-his
and the entire capitol hill family of staff of the passing of my dear friend and chief of staff steve vermilion. for nearly 25 years i have known steve as a friend, family man and committed public servant. my service in congress has been greatly enhanced by steve's invaluable advice and knowledge regarding all aspects of the legislative process. as a 17-year veteran of capitol hill, steve will be dealer missed by the capitol family for his warmth and his sense of service to this institution and our nation. steve began his service in the house of representatives in 1986, serving as communications director for then congressman bob livingston. he subsequently served as a legislative snippet for congressman james sensenbrenner, as chief of staff to former congressman lincoln diaz-balart, and my chief of staff. an avid and champion rover who, steve was recognized for his work throughout his years in congress with such distinction as the congressional staff leadership award and the congress allege hispanic leadership institute. steve demonstrated his commitment to service with great dignity these pas
coast to coast. abc's steve osunsami with the surprising consequence of the storm. >> reporter: when those awful floodwaters from sandy came rushing through, flooding streets and swamping homes, what no one expected was the storm's surprising second hit. >> we all lost our cars. at the same time, we're all trying to get a car. it's a mad house. >> reporter: more than 250,000 personal vehicles were washed away by storm waters. today, used car dealerships are busy with storm victims and, adding insult to injury, prices are shooting up because of the storm. >> we're expecting to see higher prices of $700 to $1,000 per vehicle. >> reporter: for every six people who walk into this used car dealership on staten island to buy a car, five of them lost cars to the storm. michelle and thomas lupari just bought a used minivan that can came with 70,000 miles. >> i need a car. i have to go to work tomorrow. so -- i'm kind of stuck. >> reporter: it was a happy moment -- >> sign the bottom. >> reporter: but costly, too. >> we were hoping to get something under $10,000, i winded up spending $13,000.
the other side. i think you're more with steve on this. do you think that maybe there's a little bit of slowing but it's a huge opportunity? >> well, for me, we're seeing the worst is behind us. i think q3 data have shown to us the trade volumes, the in and outs recovering from our perspective, our ships are looking well. you look at our ships 95% fully laden from asia to europe, frankly, at this point in time our ships are 100% fully laden, and people have to understand that we talk about international trades, with he talk about value. for our business we talk about the volume. value is one thing but volume is another thing, and during good times, frankly speaking probably you know, goods are more valuable, probably value is good, and in bad times people will take for more high value commodities, gifts to low value, but potentially more volume-driven commodities, we're seeing the consumers shift in more and more towards low end consumer products. i think you see that from walmart, from jcpenney, on the show about ten minutes ago. so those things are happening. that's the fundamental
yet be more twists in the plot. steve kingston, "bbc news," washington. >> for more, i am joined by a senior correspondent for national journal. thank you for coming in. is this what this is really all about. it sounds like a soap opera. there is sex involved, and that is why we are interested in it, or is there more to it? does it matter? >> it sounds like an august scandal in washington where congress is out and they are looking for something to cover. it is november this time. i think that it could be what you see on the surface, which is some people giving into temptation in high places. the mighty have fallen. but if it puts a lot of tension between the f.b.i. and the c.i.a., which they have always had a lot of tension between those two anyway, if you have the white house and congress disagreeing about the time line and who knew what when, this could have a lot of legs. it could be unfortunate for a president just starting out a second term. >> if this really was not an issue of national security but just an affair between two consenting adults, then the f.b.i., there they a
reasons for his departure. some reports say san nof ski may have had troubles in his relations with steve ballmer and other executives. in his statement, the 47-year-old executive thanked for what he called the countless blessings he received at microsoft. he also expressed his appreciation for the professionalism of workers at the company. san nof ski led the development of the surface tablet as well as windows 8. he was seen as a candidate for ceo in the future. >>> now, let's get a check on the markets. european shares are traceding lower. here is a picture of how the benchmarks are performing now. we're seeing losses across the board down about 1%. london ftse 100 is down about .9%. and the dax down about 1%. and in paris, the crack 40 is down by 1%. investors are becoming less willing to take risk because a decision on the bailout fund for greece has been put off till next week. in tokyo the nikkei extended losses to seven days. chinese stocks were treated because of fierce that the on going communist party congress would make little change in economic policies. let's have a look at
a critical mass when you have the front man of a well known band talking about sequestration. >> steve jobs, there were very few people he believed in. but the one guy he always wanted in his corner was bono. he wanted him in his economic segment because he's so smart. >> have you ever met him. >> no. >> i have. >> you have? >> i met him up in dabos. >> partied with him? >> it was a late night. but we just spent a little time with him and i was with andrew sorken, he said can we do lunch sometime? can i get your number? he said i'll find you. >> i can't believe you just gave that on air. that's great. >> that's my new one. >> the big news, was he found? >> i don't know. >> we got to get andrew on the show now. >> maybe he'll phone in. >> get an update. >>> today on the closing bell the two men behind simpson bowls deficit reduction plan which has been touted as the answer to the fiscal cliff. >> meantime, duelling earnings from discount retail rivals walmart versus target. which store chain is your best bet as we go into the holiday shopping season. but first -- >> coming up, investigating
the issue is that we focus too much on trying to prevent risk instead of managing it better? >> steve tried to argue for solace, which is an interesting concept. yes, back here. >> richard downey from the center for hemispheric u.s. david, you mentioned in the election that romney lost and we keep the strategy of footprint and europe would like to see what leadership. the reason i see most of the countries would seek greater involvement of the u.s., not all us paula mentioned. i wonder, a lot of reasons as you mentioned, david, the people in the united states are ready to take on that role. economic reasons from afghanistan and iraq are tired of it. the u.s. taking less of a leadership role that one day will the back and regret it is custom to the u.s. that meeting. >> and there was one over here. yes. >> thank you. -- >> name and affiliation, please. >> my name is my name is umbrella salÉ from afghanistan. immediately i have a small comment followed by a question. immediately after 9/11, the new normal west to kill and capture al qaeda taliban, bring them to justice, deny the space for mi
minutes. [applause] >> thank you so much and good morning, everyone, and welcome, steve. it's really, really a pleasure to have you here in this morning, and we're going to dive right in. i want to begin, first, by giving you credit for speaking to the world affairs could coun. i believe it wasn't only last year, but the year before when steve hadley challenged all of us to come up with a focus, a set of issues, in fact, that the councils across the united states should be honing in on. well, as you know, this year's conference is galvanized around a set of issues, u.s. national security, six topic issues for the president in 2013. and let me just recap those for you, because we want to drill down in these. the councils have selected u.s. economic competitiveness, u.s. education competing globally, the middle east, china, afghanistan/pakistan and u.s. energy policy as the six top issues. so starting with that, looking at it strategically, do you feel that those are the core issues before president obama and this administration and our country going into 2013? um, if not, what would y
, the color ran from the face, and he said, i'm sorry, my name is steve if you want to report me, and then he ran for the door. [laughter] i felt bad for steve. i liked steve. i chased after him to ensure he knew no hard feelings. every time i say hi steve in the hallway so he knows there's no hard feelings. his name is probably not steve. [laughter] so, you know, when i started this year, 2012, i was looking forward to two things, two steps i believed would help us fundamentally transform our government into that kind of government or something more closely representing, resemilling that government that our founding fathers end visionedded for us. one of the events, they would occur in june, probably for the end of jupe, probably the last of june, which i identified adds june 28th -- i was right. the other date i recognized as potentially transformative of our government, the other date that i recognize that i thought would probably have a positive impact op the development of our constitutional system of government was november 6th. i would just like to say at the outset that i want to than
the conversation now, former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner, good morning. >> good morning. >> we'll get to your charts. also mike allen from the "politico" newsroom, the chief white house correspondent there. good morning. >> i hate being objectified like you guys. >> see, you're in the deutsche camp. let's talk about what mitt romney said in that conference call this week. he was talking to his biggest donors, defending his campaign by saying president obama won because he focused on giving, quote, gifts to latinos, african-americans and younger voters. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> mr. romney went on to say the president wooed hispanic voters with free health care and, quote, amnesty for children of illegal immigrants. as for voters in htheir 20s, romney said, quote, with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gi
be a better buy either las vegas sands or wynn resorts? >> i think that steve wynn is a winner. i don't say that to be, you know, glib. i think you want to own wynn here. i say that if it got to the mid 100s you have to pull the trigger. it's can't back away now. steve in connecticut? >> caller: looking at u.s. domestic play, you did a segment in june, it rallied and then reported earnings on october 24th, it seemed like the earnings were great. great guidance. but it took a 9.5% beat as of the next day. does the stock still have room to roll? >> i think it does. i was talking with stephanie, the research director of actionworks.com. there is a class of stocks that are up 50% or more. unless they blow away the numbers and get you to do a raise, they just don't go up. that's part of what's their problem. red bull? that's right. finally be a bull in the china shop. the macro says it. the micro says it. things are stabilizing. i think 2013 will be a very good year for china which is why in 2012 you have to buy the fxi. stay with cramer. >>> coming up, trucking? westport innovations seemed out
. they could not celebrate this success without the leadership of steve israel, the chair. when i asked him to take this responsibility to serve our country and colleagues, i i said to all of you that he is a gold standard of a member of congress. he knows the policy. he cares about american people. that drives him to do the politics to increase our numbers to pass legislation that takes us for to improve the lives of americans. before i bring him on, i wanted to have a representative of the freshman class to speak on behalf of the class. i am very honored to welcome a fighter for the middle class, a real representative of his generation, congressman alec patrick murphy. his election is a cuase for celebration. his election sends the message to a new generation of americans that their voices will be heard at the table. congratulations, congressman a -elect, patch of mercy. -- patrick murphy. >> thank you for your leadership and for being here with us. thank you for your support. my name is patrick murphy from florida district 18. the youngest member of congress. i did defeatists someone you
. there are befoargains being created. >> but you're not ready to buy yet? >> not yet. >> i want to get to you, steve liesman. >> i thought you were going to ask me the rest of the 12 steps. >> you know, the republicans, we're hoping for a compromise, but the republicans have been digging in their heels because they've been saying higher tax rates would be job killers. who what extent would they be job killers? >> well, i'd say there's a huge debate over that. i know there are people who believe religiously that any tax increases will reduce job growth. i think that in the first order, whatever your religious feelings on that, uncertainty is almost certainly a job killer before somewhat higher taxes are. i think huge tax increases obviously would reduce job growth. if you think about what's happened to our tax code, a lot of it has become on a year to year basis. i have no idea how businesses can plan. with the fiscal cliff, without a solution, it takes nearly the entire tax code and puts it on a year to year basis. i would be very weary right now of listening to these hopeful terms that come out. th
to break the pledge next. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. bp has paid overthe people of bp twenty-threeitment to the gulf. billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger. [ gordon ] for some this line is a convenience. how you doing today? i'm good thanks. how are you? i'm good. [ gordon ] but for others, it's all they can afford. every day nea
